A warm welcome to the Generative AI Fundamentals Specialization course by Uplatz.

Generative AI, also known as genAI, is a powerful and exciting field of artificial intelligence focused on creating new content, unlike many other AI systems that primarily analyze or interpret existing data. It can produce diverse outputs like:

  • Text: Poems, code, scripts, musical pieces, emails, letters, etc.
  • Images: Photorealistic portraits, landscapes, abstract art, 3D models, etc.
  • Audio: Music in various styles, sound effects, speech, etc.
  • Video: Realistic simulations, stylized animations, etc.

How Generative AI works

Imagine generative AI as a highly creative artist trained on massive amounts of data (text, images, etc.). This training allows it to:

  1. Learn patterns and relationships within the data. For example, how words typically combine in sentences, how light interacts with objects to create an image, or how musical notes sequence to form melodies.
  2. Develop statistical models that capture these patterns. These models act like internal “recipes” for generating new content.
  3. Receive prompts or inputs from users, which guide the creative process. This could be a text description, a sketch, or even just a style preference.
  4. Use its models and the provided prompts to generate entirely new creations that resemble the training data but are not simply copies.

Different techniques used in generative AI

  • Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs): Two AI models compete, one creating new content, the other trying to distinguish it from real data. This competition refines the generative model’s ability to create realistic outputs.
  • Variational Autoencoders (VAEs): Encode data into a latent space, allowing for manipulation and generation of new data points within that space.
  • Transformers: Powerful neural network architectures adept at understanding and generating text, code, and other sequential data.
